With so many options for intermittent catheters available on the market today, it’s hard to keep up with the changes and differences between brands and styles, especially if you have used the same type of catheter for many years. Let’s start by reviewing the benefits of Cure hydrophilic catheters.
What is a hydrophilic catheter?
A hydrophilic catheter is a catheter that has a coating that is made slippery when it comes into contact with water. The Cure catheter contains a purified water packet that activates the catheter coating and makes the catheter slippery and ready to use.

How else does Cure Medical support the wheelchair community?
In addition to their extensive line of intermittent catheters, Cure Medical is the only catheter manufacturer that donates 10% of net income to spinal cord injury research, as part of their lifelong commitment to finding a cure for paralysis.
Cure Medical’s commitment to finding a cure is personal for the organization, as the company was founded by C4 quadriplegic Bob Yant. Bob explains, “In 1981 I hit my head on a sandbar and broke my neck, receiving a C-5 injury. I was dependent on others to help me. From the outset of my injury, I wanted to know: ‘How am I going to get out of this?!’
As Bob became a catheter user, he struggled due to the lack of comfort and ease of use with substandard catheters. He worked tirelessly to change the catheter realm not only for himself but for the spinal cord injury community as well.
Bob has since strived to find ways to make catherization more efficient, more comfortable, and less stressful for catheter users through the products that are developed and offered by Cure Medical, like the new Cure Hydrophilic Kit.
“If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my life, it’s that persistence is 90% of success,” Bob continues.
“I was the first person with spinal cord injury to start a retail company in this industry, and I’m the first person with SCI/D to start a manufacturing company of these products. I devote much of my time to raising money for spinal cord injury research. Now, there’s another way you can help make a contribution to help fund medical research for a cure, simply by using Cure Catheters.”
